Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown urges Government to take steps to ensure every child can go back to school in September

Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown calls on the Government to issue comprehensive guidelines to schools and ask every head to produce a back to school plan so that all children can go back to school in September.

I am sure that the Secretary of State agrees with the 15,000 parents in the Rock the Cotswolds group, who will be disappointed if any of their children cannot go back into school in September. Will he therefore consider doing two things? As well as issuing the comprehensive guidelines, he should ask every head to produce a back to school plan, preferably by the end of the summer term.

My hon. Friend raises an important point. That is very much what heads will be doing to ensure that there is full education across all year groups in all classes for every child, including in his constituency.
